Nurse finds herself in right place, right time

By Mary Landers (

Julie Anderson Paul knew something was desperately wrong from the tone of the other mother’s voice. The 34-year-old nurse had just settled back into her beach chair after a walk on Tybee’s north end when she heard the unmistakable sound of panic.

“Help my son. Oh please, please, please.”

The possibilities raced through Paul’s mind as she pounded to the surf: seizure, shark bite or drowning.

She saw the toddler’s face, blue beneath his summer buzz cut. A swim diaper had been pulled down revealing he’d soiled himself, a dire sign to Paul, who knew that it can be the body’s last act before death.

Kneeling by the 3-year-old boy, former Southside firefighter Roy Neely had already started CPR. Paul announced she was a pediatric nurse and took over the breathing portion of the child’s CPR.
